Hi, what radio apps do you recommend and what possibilities exist to integrate radio plugins to rhythmbox or other audio software?

EDIT: I know how to add a stream to Rhythmbox but I'm actually looking at a plugin that lists me dozens of stations...if not even hundreds.

Thanks for any hint. Florian

Hey, nobody of you streaming radio stations from the internet?

I think I'll close this as too subjective - again, no right answer.

@FranciscoD_ : really too subjective? Maybe I should rephrase the question...

So far, streamtuner2 (sudo yum install streamtuner) is my preferred candidate.

Askbot is not designed for recommendation based questions - all of these answers are right, which will you pick? How will you pick? The "best" answer here is completely subjective - it depends on what you like, what I like, what another poster likes and there cannot be a consensus. So, yes, too subjective. :)

If you need make a stream radio you can use IDJC, exist an old version in the official repositories

dnf -y install idjc

If you only need play radio stations, Clementine is a great alternative.

dnf -y install clementine

I have loved using the TuneIn phone app to listen to radio, and you can sign in and stream via web browser too at They have many independant radio stations as well as the mainstream stations from around the world. Otherwise, going through google search, Streamtuner2 and GreatLittleRadio seem good for Fedora, I might try them myself.

Yea, I used to use TuneIn on my phone too but when I am sitting in front of my PC I'd like to use an app there and keep my phone idle.

I am going to check on the two you mentioned. Thanks!

Streamtuner2 is great. If I could I would mark your answer right, too.

This is the complete package list:

I haven't tried too many of them, though. I stick to rhythmbox and VLC.

VLC can play anything ... It is the best music and video player!

I know, I wanted a plugin/program that comes with a preloaded list of internet radio streams. My question is not well phrased because I know how to stream internet radio but I wanted to get to know new stations and streams... which is easy if you have choice of hundreds (sorted by genre) and you can listen to them for a while... Thanks anyways!
